707 ARIA Advanced Range Instrumentation Aircraft included

Some background on the ARIA version from Bob Guere who served aboard one of the ARIA versions:

The cruise speeds were affected, and the jet generally had a higher nose-up attitude while in flight.  However, the weight of the jet was more a problem than anything.  It was chock full of electronic gear from front to back.It took a LOT of runway to get airborne when we were loaded down with fuel for a long 8 hour flight.  The EC-18 version that we are talking about here eventually was modified with inflight refueling capability, but we only used that occasionally to get somewhere in one day rather than two.  Rarely did we use it for mission support.  We cruised at 420 knots for mission support generally, and usually around 30K ft.  But I know we've topped that speed on transient legs. the port wing was painted flat black to lower the glare when we were performing optics missions.  We had hi-speed cameras pointed out that side to film the re-entry of ballistic missile re-entry vehicles.

Thanks for the note.  I agree, the recent global scenery update was outstanding.  I can't imagine how much work that must have taken them.  I also thought you did a good job on the B707 manual.  I'll bet it will be a while before you undertake another project like that.  I'm surprised you didn't wear out your scanner.  I kind of run hot and cold with x-plane.  I will spend hours for days at a time flying different airplanes and exploring different places, then I'll go weeks without ever touching it.  I've been playing with it lately and I honestly think your B707 is the best simulation of the actual airplane I have found.  It is also the most enjoyable airplane to fly of anything I have found.

Widescreen 1900 x 1600 panel by commercial pilot Andy Le Galle
For 10xx up, buying now gives free updates through out 11xx

Comes with X-plane adapted checklists for both wide and original panels, and scan of most of the real flight manual.
The 707-300 uses the JERA sound system by Chris Wraight,
 and the 707-020 will be updated with it shortly.
Some info to keep handy by retired airline pilot Andre Poirier:
One should expect a fully loaded 707 at 59 degrees F (standard atmosphere) at sea level to roll between 7500 and 8500 feet before getting airborne......That is normal.
If one engine quits at V1 and you keep accelerating to VR and liftoff at V2, raise the gear, by the time you reach 35feet AGL still at V2 you should have covered around 11,000 feet from the start of takeoff roll. That is normal.
A fully loaded 707 rarely climbed more than 1000FPM rate of climb until you have accelerated to flap retraction speed and by the time you reach 250kts the jet age catches up to you with rates of climb ot 2500fpm and better......That is also normal.
Power should be set to 1.82 EPR (on a very tight takeoff, EPR can be reset to 1.82 after the start of the takeoff roll, but not after passing 80kts) The RPMs are not expected to reach limits so are the turbine temperatures (they will be close to the yellow sector and sometimes in it but not above the red line. That is how the power is set. You may find that you still have room on the throttle travel, but since you already have all the thrust the engines are designed to put out, there is no point on pushing the throttles further and risking blowing up an engine.
